“Total Professionals, Excellent Packages”
A big thank you to Choice DJ for making our wedding day at the Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich unforgettable. We found the online booking system really simple and easy to use and for the questions we had prior to booking and prior to the day Phil was really quick and professional in his replies. We booked the Smash It live percussion upgrade and that was absolutely fantastic, highly recommend it. A great way to entertain guests with live performance without being limited to only one genre of music, very unique. The package allowed us to uplight our venue and have microphones for speeches which was just what we needed. The first dance cam was also great as we didn’t know it was there and allowed us to watch back and enjoy the moment again after. I was initially nervous about booking a DJ and percussionist Id never seen live or met in person but they were super professional and one less thing to worry about on the day. Easy to see why the awards are rolling in!

“Truly Awesome DJ”
We booked Phil to DJ our wedding at Offley Place, Hertfordshire for 31/10/15, choosing the up-lighting package, upgrading to the dance cam package. The DJ portal is fantastic where you log in at anytime planning your event. Everything from what music to play to the timings of speeches etc. we found it so easy to use and a great help in planning our day. On the day, he had arrived and set up without us evening noticing. The up lighting was stunning and we received lots of compliments from the guests and venue staff! We had a mix English/Indian wedding and had concerns over the different music to keep all the guests happy and on the dance floor. We needn’t have worried as Phil did a brilliant job of mixing the 2 cultures together. If Phil didn’t have what you are after, he offered to download the music or alternatively provide the tracks. The first dance cam was available to download and watch roughly a week later is contains over 20 minutes of all the fun from the dance floor. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is thinking of hiring a videographer for their wedding but are worried of it being a bit too intrusive.The majority of ours guests didn’t even notice it was there so great dancing has now been documented forever! Phil is extremely professional and an expert at what he does. It is refreshing to see someone taking music and presentation seriously and working with passion rather than sticking on the same cheesy songs and hoping for the best. If you want something fun and modern then this is the DJ for you! We regret not having the chance to thank you in person on the night and wish you every success in the future!
Kerrie & Hardeep – Offley Place, Hertfordshire 31/10/2015
We only had a small Wedding, so wanted to choose the right DJ to keep the dance floor packed… Phil was definitely the right choice. He played lots of our requests and kept everyone dancing right to the end – couldn’t have asked for a more! The booking process was very efficient with quick responses to emails/questions. The online portal for event planning and organising the song requests was also extremely easy to use and a great way of keeping everything in order. On the day everything ran smoothly and efficiently. Thank you so much for a great night of music!
Sam & Carl – St Augustines Priory, Bilsington, Kent 18/9/2015
My husband & I booked ‘Choice DJ’ for our wedding reception & he did not disappoint. We chose ‘Choice DJ’ based on the many positive reviews that previous customers had left so think it is deserved that we do the same! ‘Choice DJ’ have a slick, professional online service which I have never seen before in this particular industry, this service enables you to customise the music selection that will be played throughout your event, we did take advantage of this but also gave Phil the opportunity to use his initiative & play what he thought best in ‘the moment’, this choice proved worthy as our dancefloor was full & buzzing from the first song to the very last, with guests even requesting an “encore!!”, book ‘Choice DJ’ for your event, you will not be disappointed!! 🙂 xx
Ellena & David – The Great Barn, Rolvenden, Kent 17/10/2015
We used Phil for a 50th birthday party. We wanted happy faces and busy feet. Phil provided both over 5 hours of celebrations. His website is clear and easy to use,with plenty of opportunities to shape your event. His attitude is excellent, he turned up at 4 for an 8 o’clock start, checking all the equipment meticulously. We extended the finish time twice – Phil accommodated all requests with a smile. Use this man! Excellent!
Celia – Club Langley, Beckenham 3/10/2015
We were lucky enough to have DJ Choice for our wedding held at Westenhanger Castle, Hythe, Kent on 12 September 2015. The service was second to none with Phil at the helm, the booking and event planning was simple to use, we particularly liked the fact we could check off the songs, we liked that we could list our first dance and any other timings. The uplighters were fantastic and really made for an atmospheric ambience to our wedding breakfast and later for the party. Phil was extremely prepared having set up the day before in order not to disturb our special day, the transition from say to night entertainment was seamless. We would definitely recommend DJ Choice to anyone getting married they are true professionals and have the whole package! Thanks Phil!
Debs & Clive – Westenhanger Castle 12/9/2015
Phil was a really great DJ and made our wedding reception run very smoothly. We met with him and booked straight after meeting and the process was all really simple. Throughout the planning process you get an online portal where you can leave requests, and whilst all of ours didn’t get played he made sure that the music catered for those who were dancing. He took requests, so those that he hadn’t yet played off the playlist we could ask for and he played straight away. One of the brides had also set up a flash mob to surprise the other bride and he was so so helpful with it. The communication and assistance in the lead up was so great and he made sure it all run smoothly. He also recorded the whole thing for us so we have it to look back on. Thanks Phil and all at Choice DJ!

“Wedding @ St Augustines, Westgate on Sea”
We are just back from honeymoon after our wedding on the 7th Aug 2015, I’ve never had to book at DJ before so did a quick search on google, One of the first that came up was Choice DJ, I watched a few youtube videos of their Discos and decided straight away that I had found one of the best. We were limited on budget – however we decided to pay that little bit extra to hire Choice DJ because of their impressive previous performances. We wasn’t disappointed! Phil arrived at the perfect time and set up while we were having drinks in the bar, He played a mixture of our playlist and songs to get people up as and when it was require, we asked for a complete mixture of music from Cheesy Party, to Chart, to Dance tracks. Completely unaware to me but my partner had professional recorded her singing our first dance song which Phil played for us. The compliments we have had about our DJ were fantastic – Thank you Phil we have already recommended you to my friends John and Michelle who will be seeing you in May 2016.
Sam & Dan – St Augustines Priory, Westgate on Sea 7/8/2015
Absolutely brilliant! Couldn’t have asked for more! Choice Djs did an amazing job at our Turkey Mill wedding in December, they played all the music we had asked for and the setup and lighting were great too. Lots of our guests commented on how good the music was and the garage hour when down perfectly. Can’t thank you enough!! Lisa Allen
Lisa & Sean – Turkey Mill 30/12/2014
I am so glad we choose Phil to DJ at our wedding, he was brilliant!!! He played every song we requested and more, we had such a good night! Lots of positive feedback from our guests too. Thanks again Phil! The new Mr & Mrs Harden 🙂 x
Abi & Lloyd – The Orangery, Turkey Mill 17/7/2015
“Best DJ in the country”
A bold statement but true! Phil is 100% customer focused, will ensure every request you make is taken care of, is fantastic with guests and above all a really really nice bloke! Everyone was kept on the dance floor the whole evening, and it was the best night of our lives. A HUGE thanks to Phil and his support staff from Isabel & Robert x
Isabel & Robert – The Gallivant Hotel 30/5/2015
“Look no further…. Best DJ I’ve ever heard!”
Phil played at our wedding at Warbrook House 10/07/2015 It was the best decision we have ever made!! The booking process was very easy and Phil was very informative whilst not putting us any pressure at all to book. Once everything was booked and confirmed Phil gave us some login details for his online Event Planner. The website is very professional and easy to use, it allows you to tell him exactly how you would like your day set out. You can choose exactly what songs you want him to play! I think we could have about 80 songs that we could choose for him to play on the night from a very wide selection! We chose just over 30 ourselves and left the rest down to Phil, we thought with his experience this would be a good idea. And it definitely paid off!! I had a few questions for Phil from the booking stage leading up to the wedding and he was always very quick to respond and always very helpful! On the day of our wedding he set up without any fuss at all and got the music playing exactly when we wanted it. The performance on the day was absolutely unbelievable! I had no doubt that Phil was going to put on a great show from talking to him before the wedding.. But this was even better than i expected it to be!!! The dance floor was rammed all night! And people kept on commenting on how good he was. I cannot recommend him enough! If you are looking for a DJ that is: friendly, punctual, helpful, professional, stylish and plays all the songs everyone wants to hear…Look no further than this man! Best DJ I’ve ever heard! And I doubt I will ever hear one better! Alexandra & Matt, 10th July 2015
Matt Brown – Warbrook House 10/7/2015
Anna Montgomery – Eastwell Manor 5/7/2015
Phil at Choice DJ was professional and responsive from the moment we chose his services for our wedding to the moment he left our venue. He answered all of our requests via email promptly and efficiently, and gave us nothing but reassurance.
When we arrived to the disco, he was already there set up, and made a point to come and introduce himself. The music was great. He played all the tunes we requested via the very clever event planner! He also filled in well inbetween as we really had selected a mix up of genres, to suit all of our guests. Despite the evening venue being spread between an outside terrace and two floors inside, he really managed to keep everyone moving…and evening running in from outside to their favourite classic! We would definitely choose Choice DJ again, and would definitely recommend Phil for those thinking of who to make their evening reception (or any party) a success!
Rob and Anna, 5th July 2015
James Bramwell – Wilderness Road Street Party, Chislehurst, Kent 29/6/2014
Phil really got the party started and kept it going (2 hours past the official ending!). I have been fortunate enough to attend a lot of events and I always remember the ones with good music which Phil has in abundance! He listened to what we requested and made sure everyone was on their feet, young and old. I would highly recommend him for any event.
Graeme Smith – Eastwell Manor 24/5/2014
Phil is a consummate professional. He not only supplied the music but also an amazing starlit dance floor and brilliant lighting. The dance floor was packed from the start of the evening right up to the end. We have had so many guests commenting on how good they thought the DJ was on the night. This is surely enough feedback to let you know that if you are looking for a DJ who will play your type of music and make sure that everyone is having a good time, then look no further than Phil and Choice DJ. Thanks Phil – you made it a night to remember for us!!
Laura Payne – Mount Ephraim Gardens 25/4/2014
Simon and I just want to say, before we forget, thank you so much for being our DJ at our wedding on April 25th. We and all of guests had such a great time! The lighting and set up in the hall worked so perfectly and when you started playing, it was the best night ever, made up by the fact you played everything we requested. I only wish we had stayed longer and, that we could do it all over again! It’s great to see your photos of us having fun while playing the best music and we have made sure to share them with our friends. We could not have chosen a better DJ and will certainly be recommending you wherever we can.
Many, many thanks again!
Laura and Simon Payne
Phil Edbrooke – Salomons Theatre 31/12/2013
Very simply – Phil was incredible. We had our civil partnership on New Year’s Eve and it was a huge logistical minefield which Phil navigated perfectly. We have had so many guests recall Phil’s set – it felt like a nightclub in the Salomons theatre in Tunbridge Wells taking us through to 1am – exactly how we wished it to be. Also Phil was in charge of “sound production” for the live stage show we had staged in the theatre in the evening and he was so professional, focused and dedicated to making the day go so well. He took so much care and attention in getting everything right in the run up to the day and on the day. You know when sound is bad that it really spoils things and how it can add so much when right – and by golly Phil’s sound system really added to the whole day. We really can’t thank Phil enough – we know he went way beyond what would be normally be expected on a wedding day and for that we are forever grateful. I know the other suppliers were so grateful Phil was there and made it all come together.
Kaja Lloyd – Rhinefield House 23/3/2014
We got married last Sunday and we had a very mixed group of guests. Phil showed up on time and everything was ready for us, and when he started playing it was like my perfect night out clubbing, only so much better because he took into account all our requests and threw in so many fantastic tunes!! But not only he made it an ultimate clubbing experience for all of us (that includes our parents who stayed up and danced to dubstep, electro etc till much later then we expected!), the lighting was perfect and also he was taking photos of us having fun while playing the best music ever! We cannot have chosen a better DJ, if you want the best go with Phil Webster 😀
Adam Marlow – Beckenham Public Halls 1/3/2014
We were quite apprehensive about booking a DJ for our wedding having heard horror stories of them not turning up and having been to many such events whereby they just weren’t very good. Phil was recommended by a friend whom had booked him previously and from the start of the process when we first got in touch with him I was extremely impressed at his level of professionalism and responsiveness to our (numerous!) queries and requests in the lead up to the wedding. On the actual day Phil was fantastic and really ensured that everyone had a great time. We turned up to the venue and everything had been set up and the room looked amazing with the lighting Phil had used and it created a fantastic atmosphere. Phil was happy to take requests and his own song selection got everyone up and dancing and having a great time. Friends of ours who are getting married later this year asked for his details at the end and without doubt I will be booking Phil again for any parties and I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ for any kind of event. Thanks very much Phil for all your efforts and for helping us to have a fantastic night.
Adam and Emma
Lindsey George – Brands Hatch Place 14/3/2014
We booked Choice DJ for our wedding on 14th March 2014 and were not dissappointed. The room was totally transformed by the amazing uplighting and the music was great for our differernt tastes and requests. We have had great feedback from all our guests – even saying its the best DJ they’ve heard. We would 100% recommend Phil and would not hesitate to book in the future.
Leigh Holmes – Rodmersham Cricket Club 1/3/2014
We have used Choice DJ previously for events as a stand alone DJ service and have always been very impressed with the service we have received, this time though we opted for something a bit different and booked the Smash It Live package. Imagine a very professional DJ and light show and all the music accompanied by professional percussionists, it really was the most incredible experience and our guests were amazed! From enquiring….. to the end of the night, everything was perfect. We chose our songs online and they were played! In our experience this is the premier company in the UK offering this experience. And we have seen many!
James Warren – Coltsfoot Country Retreat 27/2/2014
Just a quick one to say thanks so much for the music at the wedding, it was perfect and we had loads of people say how good it all was. Who would have thought that Garth bloody Brooks would get so many people on the dance floor.
Cheers again, once we have some photos I’ll send them over.
Jim and Eileen
Jen Robertson (Joint Birthday Event) – London Golf Club, Kent 8/2/2014
Hi Phil, Just dropping you a line to thank you for a great night. Because of the mix of age groups we had, peoples taste in music was very varied, but the dance floor was busy and we were very happy. The corporate ball is a different type of event in the summer but we are looking forward to it more than ever now
Will be in touch soon, Jen
Karen & Robin – Woodlands Park Hotel, Cobham, Surrey 8/2/2014
Dear Phil, Robin and I have just returned from our mini moon, and wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and Simon for all of your hard work and expertise that allowed us and our guests to have a fabulous evening! We will be sure to highly reccomend you in the future!
Many thanks again
Karen and Robin
Kate & Stuart – Hever Castle, Kent 18/1/2014
Sorry it has taken us so long to get in touch but we just wanted to say a massive thank you for the music on the night. I am sorry I did not thank you on the day itself, I think I was a little too tipsy by the end of the evening! We had an excellent time – I think I was dancing all night. The music was really good and had the dance floor busy all night. We had lots of comments from people saying how much they enjoyed the evening. Thank you again for your hard work on the night and for helping to create our perfect day. Wishing you even more success for the future.
Kind regards, Kate and Stuart.
Noelle & Paul – The Orangery, Maidstone, Kent 14/10/2013
Absolutely superb, I couldn’t have asked for better service. A professional through and through who loves what he does. Possibly the best wedding DJ in the cosmos !
Thank you so much, Noelle & Paul
Lisa & Nick – Turkey Mill, Maidstone, Kent 20/10/2013
A big thank you to Phil for DJ’ing at our wedding, an excellent evening and everyone commented on how good the uplighters looked and the excellent music choice. Phil is a great DJ to use, a modern up to date setup and always on there to answer any queries you may have. I would recommend Phil for any event, and will definitely use his services in the future.
Maria Marsh – The Marine Hotel, Whitstable, Kent 18/10/2013
As the hostess of this event, I was feeling really nervous that it went to plan (most of all the singing!!!) but I certainly didn’t need to have any pre-nerves as the night was a huge success!! Largely this was due to Phil’s talent to know what is and isn’t going to work – from the configuration of the room, to the lighting and ultimately the music which had even the quietest of ‘wall flowers’ on their feet! I really can’t thank Phil enough for making Tony’s 40th that extra bit special. I have had many people remark on how fantastic the room looked along with what a brilliant DJ we had! To finish off with a selection of fantastic photos by the remarkably talented Julia is the icing on the cake and truly reflects what a brilliant and memorable evening it was.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending choice entertainment and soundproof weddings to any of my friends and family. Once again, Phil and Julia – Thank you x
Melissa & Chris Cunningham – High Rocks, Tunbridge Wells, Kent 21/9/2013
We booked Phil as part of a package with Julia the photographer. As the DJ was an important part of our wedding Phil was recommended to us. After meeting with Phil he instantly knew what we wanted which was evident on the day of our wedding. Everything was PERFECT!!! Chris and I were soooooo happy with the music and have since received lots of comments from our guests that it was the BEST WEDDING DJ EVER!!!! And we totally agree. Being big fans of trance, drum and base and jungle Phil compiled the perfect set which was played from midnight until just after 2am when our wedding came to a close. With the lights and haze machine we had our own personal night club!! Exactly what we wanted!! But aside from the evening Phil arrange all the music starting with our ceremony. From start to finish everything was PERFECT!!! We highly recommend Phil and will be looking to book him again in the future.
Melissa & Chris xx
Stephen & Elizabeth Farrow – Squerryes Court, Westerham, Kent 24/8/2013
We met Phil at ours over a year before our special day and after 10 mins of our 2 hr chat in our living room we both immediately knew the search for a top notch DJ was over before it even began. Phil’s enthusiasm for delivering a perfect set is beyond admirable, and I truly mean this when I say he delivers on what he says he will. Phil provided us with an outstanding light show and a hassle free set up, not that I heard anything of it but Phil and his team turned up early and met the wedding manager and sorted everything from there.
Phil and I spent some time discussing details as nearer the day drew in along with my complicated request of a bespoke first dance song. We had chosen the slower version of “We Found Love” by Boyce Avenue but after a minute or so we wanted it mixed in with the Rihanna version, Phil mixed this perfectly and the floor just erupted and didn’t stop for the rest of the night.
Phil’s service of an early set up is an absolute no brainier. If where we fell short with luck on the weather front we found it in bundles with Phil. Due to mother nature’s tantrum our guests were forced into the dance floor area early where Phil (outside of his remit) took it upon himself to start knocking out a mid tempo R&B set which the crowd took to like ducks to water.
As a groom and part organiser I was a tad emotional to see everything going better than planned. Champagne flowing and the guests glowing!!
Without doubt Phil surpassed expectation and certainly has our recommendation. For our next big party that we have I shall not be calling anyone else.
The Choice DJ Team were excellent.
Stephen & Elizabeth Farrow
Theresa & Ralph Corrish – Penshurst Place, Kent 13/9/2013
Thank you Phil! You are friendly, efficient and did an excellent job at keeping the dancefloor lively. I loved every moment of my wedding day and you really made the evening fantastic.
I really appreciated all the information on the Choice DJ website, as this transparency meant that I was always confident that you would do a great job. The lighting equipment looked great and complimented the historic venue. As requested, you kept as much as possible to our favourite tunes whilst ensuring the dancefloor was kept lively. We were really grateful that you downloaded and played a song from our friend’s band and let the person performing our first song use your sound equipment. The photos Julia took and posted were a lovely bonus that we were not expecting! Thank you!
Laura & Mark Hart – Penshurst Place, Kent 10/8/2013
Hi Phil, Sorry it’s taken us a while to get back to you. Thanks very much again for working with us on our wedding reception. We had a great time and have heard nothing but praise on the music from our friends. We appreciated too the extras you might have thrown in for us such as additional lighters – I really think the total effects of the night were outstanding. And also great to see the final playlist up online and the pictures you took! We have now voted for you on the Wedding Industry Awards link too.
Many thanks again and best wishes,
Laura Hart (Mountford)
Emily & Philip – Chilston Park, Lenham, Kent 1/9/2013
We first met with Julia and Phil a year before our wedding. We’d arranged to meet with another photographer the next day, but cancelled our other appointment and booked their great value wedding package! Julia and Phil were excellent when organising our day. They responded quickly to emails and were happy to meet with us at our wedding venue to run through the day and discuss the photos we wanted. On the day, they arrived earlier than we had agreed to capture some photos of the groom arriving in a vintage Mustang which was fantastic. They worked seamlessly together, capturing everything we wanted from venue decorations to candid photos. We’d agreed on a list of group shots and they made sure that we got these without making our guests stand around for too long. We felt very comfortable in front of the camera taking direction from Julia and Phil and they were keen to find locations that made the most of the venue. We’ve received some very unique and stunning photographs as a result of this! Having two photographers meant they were able to get different perspectives and bounce creative ideas off one another. Phil set up the evening room very quickly with mood lighting matching our colour theme. The music was great – Phil really picked up on what we liked as a couple and blended this with popular classics to keep our wide range of guests on the dance floor. We couldn’t have been happier with their service and highly recommend it. They were so lovely and attentive that we were confident we’d get great results – which we did! Having a photographer and DJ in one package is handy and you have the bonus of an extra camera all day as well! Emily & Philip x
Gabby & Joe – Lythe Hill Hotel, Surrey 8/9/2013
Thank you Phil for a great day and evening of music. Joe and I loved every minute and we’ve had countless compliments from guests on our DJ! Thanks also for the lovely review on your website Will definitely recommend you to everyone I know! Hope we can hire you again for our next event! Gabby xx
Susan & Mark – Eastwell Manor, Kent 23/8/2013
Hi Phil, thank you so much for providing the excellent music at our wedding. We have been so impressed from start to finish. You really know how to read a dance floor!I have voted for you (given you 100) and tried to be as complimentary as possible: “We could not have been happier with Phil. From the moment we booked Choice Entertainment we were impressed. He got to the venue four hours before the evening reception began! He really read the dance floor and everybody commented on how good the music was”. You really deserve to win!We will certainly recommend you to all our family and friends.Susan Grundy
Zoe & Nicky – Bannatyne Spa & Hotel, Hastings 7/7/2013
Hi Phil, Thanks ever so much for the great music and your attent email. We had to travel back to Holland straight after the wedding. Unfortunately Nick’s mum passed away 10 days after the wedding. Also my cousin that also was at the wedding had a motorbike accident a week after the wedding and is in a medically induced coma, has had to have a leg amputated and is no sure how he will be once out of it. So a very sad time lately!
The photo’s on your website are fab!! Are there any more?? I have sent an email to all the guests and we will definately like your facebook page. If we ever need a DJ we will be in contact!
So sorry for the Dutch people/guests that were playing with your dj gear. They have been told-off for it!!
Thanks again, Greetings from Holland,
Zoe & Nick
Rebecca & Benjamin – Coverwood Lakes, Ewhurst 10/8/2013
Hi Phil,AJ was amazing! I think he quickly learned the tone of our wedding and he definitely had a following by the end of the night! He played the songs we requested and was very on point with all his other song choices. I didn’t leave the dance floor all night (no word of a lie!) and we had a number of people asking us where we found him! He was simply brilliant and extremely professional in both his manner and set up throughout the day. We will definitely be recommending you and AJ to all of our friends and family. Thanks again- it was an absolute pleasure to work with you both!Best regards, Rebecca
Jane & Andrew – Hylands House, Chelmsford 20/7/2013
Hello Phil, many thanks for your work on the night- you did an excellent job thankyou so much. What we liked about your company was excellent communication, admin and good choice of songs. We were happy to leave most of it to you and you did great. I have put a vote in for you aswell on the link..Also some good photos- I’m looking a bit worse for wear though!Good luck in the National Wedding Awards!
Rachael & Russle Chapple – Brands Hatch Place, Fawkham 9/6/2013
My husband and I were very lucky to win the SoundProof package in a competition and we honestly could not have asked for two better people than Julia and Phil to be our photographer and DJ for our wedding on 9th June. They made us feel so very special and the photographs are so beautiful. The music was exactly to our taste and Phil combined our requests with his own excellent choices. The lighting looked amazing in our reception and we danced until midnigh, and we would have continued had our venue allowed it!If any bride or groom is thinking about SoundProof, please do not hesitate to book with Julia and Phil, you will get everything you want and more! Thank you so much to the both of you!
Claudia & Peter Lovelady – Tithe Barn, Lenham 29/6/2013
Thank you for providing the most incredible music that really made the evening reception a great success! Haven’t danced so hard in a very long while. No one tells you how heavy wedding dresses are! My arms were killing me the next day after lugging it around all night but I felt like a princess, am still on cloud nine and wouldn’t have had it any other way!!!Claudia
Hi DJ Phil Webster,
just seen the words you wrote, the video and the photos on your website regarding Claudia’s and Peter’s wedding – absolutely lovely.
The whole day was fantastic and the evening made especially great having you as the DJ. You were wonderful. The music was superb with something for everyone, the lighting was fantastic, it just transformed the whole area. Many many thanks it will be a night never to be forgotten!
Caroline and Steve Lovelady (Grooms Parents)
Gemma & Paul – Farleigh Golf Club 15/6/2013
Hi Phil, just returned from honeymoon and wanted to send an email and say a massive thank you for the wedding music. Was a brilliant night and the dance floor was filled from start to finish and everyone commented on how brilliant it was. If you could please pass our thanks on to Dan and we will definitely be recommending you.
Many Thanks, Gemma and Paul
Rebecca & Rob – Preston Court, Canterbury 13/6/2013
Hi Phil, we just wanted to thank you for dj-ing at our wedding, we had a great time. The sound limiter was pretty annoying and we felt really frustrated for you. We did complain to the venue owners a few times, but they were reluctant to do anything (as you predicted!). Anyway, we just wanted to reassure you that we and our guests had a really good night. Hope you enjoy the rest of the summer!
Richard & Hannah – The Little Silver Country Hotel, Tenterden 22/6/2013
Hi Phil, Hannah and I are great thanks. We would both like to say a massive thank you for the great job you did at our wedding. The music, acoustics and lighting were all great and all the guests were very impressed and some have asked me who you were for possible future bookings. And thank you for the photos, we had no idea any photos were being taken so it was a nice surprise for both of us. You have managed to capture some really good shots there too. I have left a comment on your facebook page too.
All the best for the future! Richard & Hannah
Amy & Craig – The Little Silver Country Hotel, Tenterden 6/6/2013
Hi Phil, just a quick one to say thanks for such a great night on Thursday, all our guests commented on how good the music was and that they were really impressed with you! If there’s any way to view the photos your colleague took please do let me know as I’m sure they are hilarious!
Becky & Chris – Westenhanger Castle, Kent 18/5/2013
Phil was our DJ on the 18th May at Westenhanger Castle, and did a fantastic job. Prior to booking, we were in touch with several DJs, but most of these were not to our liking. Phil was the only one we met in person, and after speaking to him we did not hesitate to pay the deposit! He is so easy to get on with, and made the whole process easy from start to finish. He was very prompt with all communication prior to the big day, and the end product was outstanding. We booked Choice Entertainment as part of the Soundproof package, meaning Phil was also taking photographs during the day. This meant he spent around 15 hours at the venue on the day, but despite the long hours he and Julia remained a pleasure to work with throughout. The set up of the equipment was finished hours before the guests arrived, so there were no distractions in the background. The lighting and effects were top notch, matching our colour scheme perfectly. The sound was perfect too and the music went down brilliantly. Phil had a great rapport with the guests, who all felt comfortable approaching him with their requests. He kept the dancefloor busy until the end of night, catering amazingly well to all kinds of tastes and personalities. All our guests enjoyed the evening immensely thanks to Phil. He takes some great photos too, and some of these were put up very quickly on his blog a couple of days after the event. I would definitely recommend Choice Entertainment, and the SoundProof package.
Thanks Phil and Julia! x
Jo & Ben – The Runnymede-on-Thames, Surrey 11/5/2013
We were unsure at first whether to book Phil as our DJ as he was slightly over our budget but after reading so many great reviews about him we decided to go for it – and I’m so glad we did. He was so helpful during the whole booking process and was very accommodating when I asked him to help out and play along with a surprise dance with my Dad. I was also pleased to see a lady with Phil who took lots of pictures on the night which were fun to look at during our honeymoon. They were very easy-going on the night when I kept changing my mind about what time my husband and I wanted to leave the party 🙂 Don’t bother looking at any other DJ for your wedding – if you want a classy, fun and well organised evening then book him now!!
Katie & James Kaminski – Northbrook Park, Farnham, Surrey 9/5/2013
A Massive massive thank you to Phil for being our DJ at our wedding. It was amazing, everyone loved it and danced all night. You provide an excellent disco and at a very competitive price. We could not be happier. Many Thanks and we will be sure to spread the word.
Vanessa & Anthony Calvino – The South Lodge Hotel, Horsham, Sussex 27/4/2013
Tony and I would like to thank you for being our DJ on Saturday night, you were fantastic. The lighting was great, the music spot on and everyone had a great time. We wanted our guests up on the dance floor all night and I am pleased to say that there was never a moment where the dance floor was empty. We had so many guests tell us how much they loved the music being played, there was a real mix and everyone was happy. We couldn’t have asked for a better evening…..and that’s down to you! We will definitely be in contact for any future parties if we require a DJ. Thank you so much.

Leanne & Jack – The Hilton Hotel, Cobham, Surrey 5/4/2013
Jack and I opted for the ‘Remember Everything’ package, with Phil providing the music, dj sound and lighting for the day along with Julia from Remember That? capturing the photographs from the bridal preparations through to the evening disco. I remember walking in to the Hampton Suite at the Hilton Hotel and was taken aback by how beautiful the room looked due to Phil’s mood lighting and the name projection of ‘Mrs & Mrs Ralton, which gave a personal touch. Phil had a great understanding of what all of our guests wanted and was able to keep everyone on the dance floor. A challenging task when you have guests ranging from 2 – 80 years old. However, Phil managed this with ease and gave us the best night of our lives. Our wedding was a week ago and friends and family are still telling us how great the day was, but especially what an amazing time they had at the disco. Phil even played some of our favourite songs when we didn’t even request them! He just read what people wanted and did it. Liaising with Phil leading up to the wedding was also easy and stress free. He would always reply straight away and was happy to accept last minute changes up until the week of the wedding. I decided that I wanted to have a father-daughter dance with my dad and Phil sorted this out last minute. It was an absolute pleasure working with Phil and we are delighted with the package that we chose and the service that we received. It was personal, friendly and fun! We cannot recommend Phil enough for being so good at what he does but for also making our day so special. Thank you, Leanne & Jack Ralton
Grace & Simon – Addington Palace, Surrey 2/3/2013
Thank you Phil for a great write up which brought back lots of memories, and for doing a great job for us all day!
You were so professional and we knew from the start that we would be able to trust you to make everything run smoothly. You really did, as well as going the extra mile for us, which we really appreciated!
We all had a great time on the dancefloor – especially Simon as you said! Even though there was plenty of room to sit and chat elsewhere, the dancefloor was always busy with people from across the generations.
We loved the daytime music too – with a young baby to juggle we just didn’t have the time to sort out our own background mixes, so that was something we were able to tick off our to-do list and relax! One of my friends asked for the playlist – I don’t know if you have that?
We’ll definitely recommend you in future. Many thanks!
Grace & Rob – The Elvetham Hotel, Hampshire 22/02/2013
Phil, thanks so much for a fantastic evening, all your fantastic reviews are very well deserved! I was amazed at how you kept the dance floor full and the energy that was on the dance floor was brilliant!
Sorry about the incident with Mr Cooper, who was the owner of those very stylish shoes!
Hannah & Tim – Chiddingstone Castle, Kent 23/02/2013
From the first time I spoke to Phil I felt confident that the type of theme we were after could be pulled off. As mentioned, our favourites throughout the eras were listed and sent to Phil. He finalised the play list and managed to keep the dance floor alive for the entire night… Even with the memorable power cut the guests did not leave the floor wanting to know what was next…
With my wife, Hannah, arriving fashionably late to the church and with the speeches overrunning, Phil still managed to link the eras perfectly. (Candi Staton vs Florence being a highlight for me)
Phil – thanks again for all of your help with making our initial idea a reality. The selection of the DJ was my main job for our big day and the feedback I have received has been great. I did something right! This part was really important to us and it worked a treat! Will be recommending you to anyone who mentions the need for DJ.
Sonya & Mark – The Alexander Centre, Faversham 17/02/2013
Thanks Phil for a great night. We had such a fantastic day, and it was great to have such a professional DJ. We thought that your stage/equipment was impressive, and you played exactly what we wanted. The guests had a great time, and the dance floor was always busy! Thanks for saving – Queen Dont Stop me Now as the last song!! Great choice!
Thanks again. Sonya
Alastair & Jayne – Gallivant Hotel, Camber Sands 26/01/2013
Hi Phil, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. We’ve been non-stop since the 26th Jan getting out to Melbourne, getting over jetlag, starting work and trying to find somewhere to live! We’re finally in somewhere so the dust is settling slowly and we can catch up on stuff. Many thanks for a great evening on our wedding day. We all had a great time as I imagine the pictures bear out!

Victoria & Adam – Buxted Park, East Sussex 16/11/2012
I used Choice Entertainment for my wedding in November at Buxted Park, words cant express how truly amazing Phil is but im going to try because if there’s a supplier of mine that really deserves a review its him.
I chose Phil a long time before my wedding after doing a lot of extensive research, I booked his DJ services along with name projection, a light show and mood-lighting.
My photographer pulled on me a month before my wedding and i had to find another, Phil was offering a Photography package with Julia at Remember That Photo ? and gave me a fantastic deal to cover the whole day.
They went far and beyond what is normally expected from a supplier, my photos are beautiful, unique and truly artistic – im so very happy with them. One of the things that was very important to me was that all my guests had fun, the music was brilliant and well timed – we danced all night long!
The lighting, look of the room and DJ booth was magical, I can honestly say i had the best party ever! and they captured it all on the photos that i will cherish forever.
Lastly i would like to say that Julia and Phil are really lovely people and so easy to be around, true professionals who work very hard to make you happy, and they did just that.
Love you Guys! thank you xxxxx
Camilla & Jake – Tithe Barn, Petersfield 21/12/2012
Thank you so so much for helping to make our wedding day perfect.
Phil is everything and more you would want from your dj. Honestly, went above and beyond any expectations we had. The dancefloor was full all night, Phil was there from early in the day to set up, play our ceremony music, drinks reception music, add atmospheric lighting to the venue, supply PA system and even took photos and wrote a short story on us for his website. The story, photos, playlist really show that Phil adds a personal touch to each of his jobs. If you want a good party, book Phil!!!
All the best Phil and Happy new year!
Jake & Camilla
Hayley & Rich – Founders Hall, London EC1 28/11/2012
We’re back from honeymoon now and wanted to ask you to say a big thank you to Simon for DJing at our wedding reception. Everyone fed back with how much they enjoyed it. Hayley and I were both saying we got very lucky with everyone we worked with that day to make it go so well, so thank you for that! The set up looked great, the music was great, couldnt have asked for more. Will definitely come back to you if we need a DJ again or if anyone asks for a recommendation. The day/night went so quickly, it almost feels like a surreal experience. So we’re looking forward to seeing all the photos to remind ourselves of it. Did you take some of the evening you could share with us? We should get our professional photos through in a week or two, so if there’s good ones of you guys, i’ll pop them over to you. All the best mate and thanks again!
Rich & Hayley
Sharon King – Footscray Social Club, Sidcup 08/12/2012

Olivia & Theo – The Andaz Hotel, Liverpool Street, London 24/11/2012
Dear Phil, We just wanted to drop you a line before we head off on honeymoon tomorrow so say a MASSIVE THANK YOU for yesterday! I’m sure you could tell from the full dancefloor and the cries of ‘One more song!’ that we and our guests had a fantastic time at the wedding reception thanks to you playing our favourite tracks! Apologies for the hugh amount of cheese, but we loved it!!!
If you get a moment, we’d be so grateful if you could send us the pictures you took last night, as by the time the party was in full swing our photographer had wrapped up so it would be excellent to have some images of the evening’s antics on the dancefloor! Thank you so much again and the very best wishes,
The New Mr & Mrs Highland x
Pippa & Gary – The George Vaults, Rochester 27/10/2012
Hi Phil, I hope you are well. I went on your blog and saw you had been nominated for the awards, congratulations!!! I know they are not judged this way, but I thought it wouldn’t do any harm to email them to say now great you were anyway. A copy of our message below.
I wanted to email you from our honeymoon to say how fabulous one of your finalists is. Choice DJ, DJ Phil Webster played at our wedding last Saturday and we couldn’t have asked for more. Phil keep the floor packed all night, responded to our eclectic taste in music and played a perfect set for us and our guests. Throughout the process Phil was responsive to all our suggestions and made many of his own which helped to make it the great night it was. Phil was also very flexible at the end of the evening when we wanted to extend the set. We vote for DJ Phil! Pippa And Gary Wright.
Thanks again Phil for everything, you were such an important part of the evening and we couldn’t have asked for more. Good luck!

Hi Phil, we can’t thank you enough for such a great evening at our wedding at Tudor Park on 21st October. For people reading this wondering whether to book Phil ‘DO IT’ he actually made our wedding evening the most memorable we could of wished for. His knowledge of music and how to read a crowd were amazing and we had endless praise for him from our guests. We had the background music and uplighters which added so much to the whole atmosphere. Thank you again Phil for all of your help.
We would definately recommed Phil and Phil, any family do’s or Party’s you will be our first port of call.

Caroline & Matt – 1 Lombard Street, London 16/6/2012
Hi Phil, Hope you are well. Caroline and I are just back from honeymoon and wanted to drop you an email to say how delighted we were with the disco that David ran for us at our wedding on 16 June. It was absolutely excellent. He had everyone up and dancing and played a great mix of music, the dancefloor was pristine and looked incredible in that room. I don’t have his email address so do hope that you will pass on our sincere thanks. The lighting looked wonderful, the set up was spot on and everything was just as we had hoped so many many thanks.
Best regards, Matt
Ashley & Daniel – Turkey Mill, Maidstone 15/6/2012
Hi Phil, Just wanted to say a big thank you for the job you did at the wedding, everybody really enjoyed themselves and have commented on how good the DJ was.
you sent me an email the other week saying that some of the photos you took where now available to view, i’ve accidentily deleted that email and cant remember where you said i could find the pictures?
Nathan & Tracey Keenan (Crayford) 2012.10.11 17:26
We booked Phil for our wedding on the 29th september and couldnt have wished for a better DJ / sound man. Phil bent over backwards to help us with everything from microphones for the speeches and outdoor speakers playing music throughout the day aswell as providing the musical entertainment for the night. He also set up background music during the wedding breakfast which was soft and mellow that all of our guests loved.
We would highly recommend Phil for any event and would like to thank him for making our wedding day even more perfect.
Jo and James Firth 2012.10.7 21:10
We would highly recommend Simon as a wedding DJ. The service he provided was just as discussed – set up on time and the music genres just as we requested. He was very professional and had people dancing from the start of the music to the end of the night (and beyond!). We had a fantastic evening and hope to come accross him again!
Chris Galea 2012.9.27 19:52
Phil provided the sounds and lighting for our wedding and I have to say he did not disappoint. All our guests had a great time and he managed to keep everyone dancing all night, no mean feat based on my experience of other weddings. A good time was had by all. Phil is very professional and helped make our day very special. I would recommend his services to anyone.
Linn & David Aspinall 2012.9.22 15:07
Phil you did a great job at our wedding in September 2012. You played the songs we had asked for mixed with some other great tunes which we all enjoyed. You also knew exactly when to play the right songs and the finale was brilliant.
Amelia & Adam Whitmore 2012.9.13 15:39
We booked Phil for our wedding in August. We gave a playlist as we didn’t want your average wedding disco. Phil was fab at responding to my emails quickly and efficiently. On the night our dance floor was packed and our guests were more than impressed. Would fully recommend and would book again.
Phil also supplied the uplighting for our disco room and at the front of the house, his attention to detail was spot on and this made our day even better.
Thanks for all your hard work. Mrs & Mrs Whitmore – Little Hermitage 18th August 2012
Michelle and Paul Widdows 2012.8.24 11:10
Music was fantastic, all friends and family commented and said how great it was. Lights were also brill and the after pictures look brill. Simon was brilliant and accommodated everything that we asked for. Thanks for a great evening.
Mr and Mrs Wright 2012.6.25 16:49
Hi Phil, thanks for your email we just wanted to say thank you, Martin was absolutely brilliant! He read the dance floor amazingly and because of that it was always full! We never wanted the night to end and had such an amazing and perfect day which was topped off by all the dancing and singing. Thank you so so much for playing our last Song ‘Mr Brightside’ – it made the end even better! Thank you again, love Mr and Mrs Wright xXXx
Kevin & Sarah Wedding 12/05/2012 2012.6.4 13:10
Hi Phil, firstly thank you for dealing with all the organisation of the music in the build up to the wedding and on the night thank you for supplying AJ. What can I say, it was one of the best nights ever for me and my mrs, as it was a mixed wedding he played both Indian and English latest music, my family and my mrs family enjoyed every moment of it. The sounds were amazing, The mood lighting was fantastic – i would totally recommend AJ to anyone. Once again Excellent Job Phil and AJ
Shane and Clare 2012.5.23 10:02
I can highly recomend Phil !! His music was great, he had a great ability to read the crowd and the mood, the dance floor was constantly busy. Also the lighting and visuals really added to the atmosphere ! I was also lucky enough to have some great pictures which Phil and his colleague managed to take during the evening. Thanks Phil for a great night.
Jemma & Simon Staken 2012.5.6 18:27
After many, many months of searching for a wedding DJ, we found Phil’s details on the internet. Because the music was so important to us, and because of several meetings with DJ’s that we just didn’t click with, we asked Phil to meet with us to get an idea of what he was all about and what type of music he preferred to play (although a good Dj will be able to play any music, we preferably wanted someone who actually liked the same stuff as us, as we thought that would show through).
As soon as we met Phil we had a good feeling about him, he gave us some good and honest advice about what we were asking for (i.e. playing all of our favourite music) and then our meeting just descended into some mutual appreciation of our favourite music genres! We ended up booking him immediately after this meeting.
When it came to the week of the wedding we sent Phil probably quite a extensive list of genres we wanted covered, songs we definitely wanted played, and songs that we would quite like to have played. Phil was fine with this, and did the necessary downloading to make sure he had all of our songs.
On the day itself Phil arrived nice and early and set up discreetly whilst the meal was being served – we didn’t even hear him come in. When I went across to speak to him he had everything sorted already, there was a slight issue with the venue’s power supply, but Phil had already sorted this – I was impressed that he had done this and not bothered us by it.
Phil chose some great music to play whilst our evening guests arrived, by the time the dancefloor “opened” we were desperate to dance!
We were really impressed with how Phil used the choices we had given him along with reading the crowd to produce a set which went down brilliantly. We had told all our guests before the wedding that we would not be off the dancefloor all night, and we weren’t lying! We just didn’t want it to end.
We felt we gelled really well with Phil, and we, along with our guests, have been raving about him ever since the wedding (05/04/2012). We just hope that one of our friends books him so we can experience his amazing DJ skills again. We cannot emphasise enough, how great Phil is – and at a fantastic price as well! We could not have found a better DJ.
Amy and Paul Davies 2012.5.1 13:00
Sorry it’s a bit late but we just wanted to thank you so much for doing a brilliant job at our wedding on 24 March @ the Little Hermitage. We have had so many people say how good you were and the lighting looked great. I believe the venue must have been impressed with you as you are now their recommended supplier. Next time we need a DJ we know where to come.

Nina & John – 17th March 2012.4.30 17:29
Hi Phil, can you thank Simon for DJ’ing at Sundridge Park Manor for our wedding we had a blast! John was a bit smashed by the end of the night but then again I did a pretty good impression myself…weirdly though, neither of us were too bad the next day and I remember everything which is great – must have been all the dancing and abandoning lots of drinks! Sorry once again for the disco ball incident, but I guess you know its a good wedding when the bride knocks down the disco ball!!
Thanks again you guys were great, we loved the music and the lighting was fab.Take care, Nina xx
Kirsty Davidson 2012.4.23 11:28
Phil, just wanted to say a big thank you for a brilliant set at our wedding reception on 21st April 2012, loved the music you played and thank you for playing songs we requested. Everyone had such a good night and commented on how good the music was. The mood lighting was also fab and totally finished the look, the marquee looked brilliant!!! Once again big thanks and we would book you again for future party’s. Many Thanks Kirst & Josh
Michael 2012.4.15 21:35
Many thanks for the great DJ service you provided for our wedding at Rhinefield House in Hampshire on 25 March 2012. It was a great night and you kept the party going and people on the dancefloor right up to the end. We were very vague with our direction on what kind of music we wanted, leaving it largely in your hands, and you didn’t disappoint. From the start of our dealings I found you to be friendly, professional and happy to accommodate our needs. The music and lighting equipment was all excellent and the set-up looked great.
Many thanks again,
René Tym 2012.4.15 18:40
Phil, thanks for DJ’ing at Lympne Castle for our wedding last night – you seemed like a top chap, and it was great that you were able to mix up the songs we wanted (the list of millions…) with some great choices that other people loved. Some brand new tunes like Rizzle Kicks, with some classics from all the decades. I was loving some of the dance tunes! It all seemed really professional, but friendly at the same time. I was impressed with the quality of the sound system too. I’d definitely book you again sir (although I’m not planning to get married again anytime soon!). It was really nice that you took all those pictures of the night for us too – an added bonus 🙂 René and Brooke, X.
Clare & Paul 2012.4.14 09:50
Hi Phil, thanks so much for the fab disco you put on for our wedding at Chilston Park on 9th March. A packed dance floor is always a sure sign of a great night and wicked music! I particularly enjoyed the Garage anthems, they went down a treat & I think one of friends took your number because he loved your music so much! The uplighting also looked superb. Thanks for taking some pictures and uploading them on here, I’ve enjoyed looking through them!
